Flashlights : Coleman (31)

Since 1900, Coleman's obsession, as well as their passion, has always been building a smarter product-one that works harder, lasts longer and performs heroically.

The first product created by Coleman was their lantern, so it stands to reason that their logo is a lantern. Coleman has built more than 50 million of them, since W.C. Coleman made the first one in 1901. That's a lot of lanterns. It's hardly an exaggeration to say they know more about designing outdoor lighting products than anyone else.

From day one, they stepped to the drawing board with a better idea. In the early years, W.C. Coleman realized gas would burn cleaner and more efficiently than the smoky, smelly kerosene which fueled the lanterns of the time. And he was right. His gas lanterns burned remarkably better. In fact during Word War I, the U.S. government declared the Coleman lantern an essential product because it extended the daylight hours of farmers who fed the troops overseas.

Today Coleman continues to revolutionize lantern manufacturing. Their lanterns combine the cumulative wisdom of a century of lantern designs with a steady stream of innovative ideas. They make dozens of models, operated on propane, liquid fuel and batteries. As sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, you can count on Coleman lanterns to light the night.
